If you want to talk health, you have to talk racial justice

In this short video, Prevention Institute’s deputy executive director, Manal J. Aboelata, introduces the concepts of health equity and racial justice and explains why we can’t achieve health as a nation without taking on structural racism. So many of the unjust and unfair outcomes that we see in communities in terms of health, safety, and wellbeing are connected to racism, discrimination, and other forms of racial injustice. That means we need to engage deeply in work that will close racially unjust gaps in health outcomes in order to achieve health, safety, and wellbeing for our nation as a whole.
